I am regularly using airplanes for transportation between race destinations. In fact, travelling with a bike is always a very stressful situation. Usually, I am very afraid when I have stopovers, because most of the airport staff do not handle my bike bags politely. In line with this, when we arrive on final destination, bag is very dirty and some parts are even broken or damaged. Despite of many bags that I have already used, I am wondering if there is a possibility to create a bag at home.
Has anyone experience with homemade bags?
I am still looking for appropriate material. Wood seems to be very heavy, whilst cardboard boxes are too soft.
What do you think?
